Summary
Rob Riley was at the centre of debates that polarised views in race relations in Australia: land rights, treaty, deaths in custody, self- determination, justice system, native title and the Stolen Generation. Tragically, he took his own life in 1996, shocking community leaders and citizens alike
Summary
Beresford (politics and government, Edith Cowan U., Australia) recounts the life and activist work of Rob Riley (1954-1996), an Aboriginal leader who was involved in the Western Aboriginal Legal Service, National Aboriginal Conference, and the fight for national land rights. Beresford describes Riley's life from the history of his family to his depression and eventual suicide, emphasizing his other work for the Aboriginal rights movement, such as his participation in the debate over native title and the Stolen Generations.
